Jameela Jamil took to social media to express her disappointment and slammed the event organizers of the annual Metropolitan Museum of Arts Costume Institute benefit. This year’s Met Gala is giving a special tribute to fashion legend Karl Lagerfeld and Jamil trashed the event for its Selective cancel culture approach. The Misery Index host wrote,

“Last night Hollywood and fashion said the quiet part out loud when a lot of famous feminists chose to celebrate at the highest level, a man who was so publicly cruel to women, to fat people, to immigrants, and to sexual assault survivors. And all the women’s publications, and spectators online, chose to gleefully ignore it.”

 Jamil continued,

“Suddenly, your appetite to find someone’s tweets from when they were 12 has gone. Nobody has perfect morals, least of all me, but Jesus Christ, we had a year to course, correct here, and not award the highest honor possible to a known bigot.”

The actress noted that people had gleefully ignored the fact that the Chanel designer had previously made many distasteful remarks about marginalized groups. Jamil added,

“This isn’t about cancel culture. It’s not even about Karl. It’s about showing how selective cancel culture is within liberal politics in the most blatant way so far. It’s about showing why people don’t trust liberals. Because of slippery tactics and double standards like this.” 

The Chanel legend died in 2019. Jameela Jamil pointed out that it’s not about Karl Lagerfeld but how selective culture is within liberal politics. The actress concluded,

“And it’s not just Hollywood here; the general public online participated and was entirely complicit in the erasure of the truth last night. They replaced their pitchforks with spoons last night to lap that s**t right up. If we carry on like this, don’t be shocked when we lose the next election.”

According to Deadline reports, this is not the first time Jameela Jamil has slammed Met Gala for its theme. Last year the MCU star expressed her discontent by sharing a series of screenshots of articles about Karl Lagerfeld’s previous controversial statements.
